The kite winder you choose is extremely important. 99% of kites come with a standard D handle winder. This is a cheaper and functional winder, but it is not the easiest to hold onto and it takes some work to reel the kite back in. We highly recommend a winder upgrade for your kite. Traditional kite winders are great, easy to hold onto, and easy to reel in. Yo-Yo winders or Hoop winders are, again, easy to hold, and reel in. The best however are out kite reels. These things have hand cranks that let you reel kite in like its a fishing line. This is BY FAR the easiest and quickest way to reel your kite in.
